Event Addition Criteria

For an event to qualify for addition to our calendar, it must generally meet the following criteria: the event must occur within Anne Arundel County or close proximity thereto, must be of interest to the community at large, and cannot be a substitute for paid print advertising for a business. Events which relate to the arts, which benefit local non-profit groups, or which provide information on topics vital to individuals and the community will be given preference for inclusion. All events which may not meet these criteria will be added at the discretion of the publisher. We will do our best to make sure that all qualifying events brought to our attention are added to the calendar as soon as possible. Events which are added to the web calendar are not guaranteed placement in the print edition, due to space and time considerations.
